Become a member of the Association of Pathology Chairs!


Ready to join APC? Apply for an APC Membership Today!

The above link may be used to apply for a new membership, or to add members to a current departmental membership. All membership requests are reviewed and approved according to APC's Bylaws and Operating Procedures.


 

Membership Benefits

APC membership includes eligibility for elected office*, committee participation*, discounted meeting rates, discounted article processing fees for APC’s open-access journal Academic Pathology, newsletters, advocacy, professional networking, and members-only online resources and e-lists.

The above benefits (except those asterisked) are available to ALL members within a member institution. Additionally, the annual membership fee is a flat fee covering all eligible employees within one department. Departments are able to add or remove members as changes to their staff occur, without incurring any additional fees.

The e-lists are especially useful to our members, as we put them directly in touch with their peers in other Pathology departments throughout the U.S. and Canada (plus a handful of international members). Members are able to ask their peers for feedback or knowledge on a variety of issues specific to the academic Pathology field (and to very specific Pathology Department billing/reimbursement issues, in the case of the Administrators’ section).

* Applicable only to certain members/leadership roles


Membership Eligibility

APC members sections and eligible roles are listed below:

  • APC - Departmental Chairs*
    • APC (Vice Chair) - Departmental Vice Chairs
  • PRODS - Residency Program Directors
    • Assoc. PROD - Associate Residency Program Directors
  • UMEDS - Directors of Undergraduate Medical Education (medical school)
  • PDAS - Department Administrators or Business Managers
  • GMEAS - Residency and Fellowship Coordinators

* Past Pathology Chairs can remain members of APC—or re-join APC—through our Senior Fellows group. These special memberships are separate from any departmental memberships, and are free of charge! Learn more about APC's Senior Fellow memberships.

 PRODS is exclusive to residency program directors (and associate directors); APC does not have a section for directors of fellowship programs. Fellowship directors looking for additional resources may wish to contact their relevant subspecialty society, or their subspecialty's appointed representative on the FDAHC (APC's Fellowship Director's Ad Hoc Committee).

 

Membership Options

There are three types of APC membership: Regular, Affiliate, and Special.

  • Regular (Departmental): This level applies to Pathology and Laboratory Medicine departments at LCME-accredited institutions. Membership covers all eligible employees in the department.

  • Affiliate (Departmental): This level applies to Pathology and Laboratory Medicine departments at non-LCME-accredited institutions, such as hospitals, and new schools still in the accreditation process. Membership covers all eligible employees in the department.

  • Special (Individual): This level applies to eligible individuals whose departments/institutions do not hold membership with APC. Membership covers one person.
